"I Suffered for Over 20 Years!"
I was suffering for over 20 years from being in constant pain and not being able to stand or walk for long periods before getting joint replacement surgery.
I knew I needed to go ahead with surgery when I realized I was just tired of putting up with the pain. I was getting less and less mobile every year. That's when I knew it was time for a change.
Now I don't have any pain. I can do almost anything I want to do now, and the longer I go, the better I will get.
The advice I can give is to go talk with your doctor and stop being afraid of the pain, believe me, it is worth it in the long run. The rehab was a lot of work and effort but no pain, no gain. I had both knees done at once, and I wish that I had done it 10 years ago.
